Travel Blog Indonesia – The prohibition of carrying large electronic devices, such as laptops into the aircraft cabin, is already in effect in several countries, such as the United States and Britain. Then, what about Indonesia, is there such a ban?
Prohibition of bringing a laptop to the cabin of a hoax plane
The Ministry of Transportation (Kemenhub RI) emphasized that the issue of prohibiting carrying laptops and other electronic items into the aircraft cabin is not true.
For now, large electronic items, such as laptops can be brought into the cabin, but before that they must be removed from the bag and checked through the machine x-ray.
Via account Facebook belongs to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation @djpu151 the team quoted Reservations.com (4/4/2017), here are the reviews:
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation confirmed that electronic items can be carried in the aircraft cabin.
However, electronic goods that passengers will carry on board must be strictly inspected.
The inspection of electronic goods must have been carried out at the airport before the passenger boarded the aircraft, in accordance with the following conditions:
1. Decree of the Director General of Civil Aviation no. SKEP / 2765 / XII / 2010
Article 23 point b, point 3 in SKEP 2765 / XII / 2010 states that laptops and other electronic items of the same size are removed from the bag / luggage and checked through the machine x-ray.
In the SKEP / 2765 / XII / 2010, it is stated about “Procedures for Security Checks for Passengers, Aircraft Personnel and Carry-Ons Transported by Aircraft and Individuals”. Laptops and other electronics are removed from the bag / baggage and must be checked through the machine X-Ray.
2. Circular of the Director General of Civil Aviation no. SE.6 of 2016
This Circular of the Director General of Civil Aviation also ensures that laptops and other electronic items must be removed from luggage / carry-on bags and checked through an X-Ray machine.
If the inspection using the X-Ray machine still makes the goods inspecting officer doubt (X-Ray operator), the inspection must be done manually with the following steps:
- The owner of the property turns on the electronic device
- The owner of the goods operates the electronic device
- Aviation security personnel supervise and see the results of the inspection of these devices.
This strict inspection of electronic goods was carried out in an effort to improve bomb handling (Bomb Threat) on civil aviation which has been stipulated in Dirjen Air Transportation Instruction Number 3 of 2017.
